The rugged mountain landscapes of Nááts’įhch’oh National Park Reserve are a refuge for large and small animals alike. They have been an important part of Sahtu Dene and Métis culture since time immemorial.

From the caribou grazing lichens on high, rocky slopes to the beavers paddling in the ponds on the valley bottoms, these animals occupy diverse habitats across the park. Most animals are shy and often keep their distance away from visitors. As a result, sightings of large, iconic species are not particularly common. But they still leave plenty of evidence behind as they use and travel through different areas.
